I heard on The Dr. Oz Show that bags, wallets, and purses made from vinyl (or PVC-Polyvinyl chloride) are toxic because they contain lead. This article states that “the worst offenders were bags that were yellow or yellow-tinted.” I for one, am horrified by this. I use bags because I have to and have no intention of spending hundreds of dollars on an expensive leather purse. I guess it’s time to use canvas or vegetable tanned leather bags.
Check your bags ladies, and keep yourself and your family members safe.
